Quavo Responds to Chris Brown: ‘Don’t Beat Her Up, It Must be the Drugs’

attachment Chris Brown Quavo Fashion Show

Quavo wasted no time responding to Chris Brown. After Brown dissed him on the 11:11 deluxe edition, Quavo dropped off “Tender” by analyzing the singer: “It must be the drugs.”

“You did the b–ch wrong and now the bb–ch gone, she posted with a thug
Call the b–ch phone, she won’t come home, don’t beat her up
It must be the drugs
Need to cross out your plug”

A day before “Tender,” Chris Brown released the deluxe edition of his 11:11 project. The album includes the single “Freak,” featuring Lil Wayne, Joyner Lucas, and Tee Grizzley for a set of bars of an “Air Force Ones” sample.

The bars are below:

“F-cking my old b-tches ain’t gone make us equal
Sipping that 1942 cause I don’t do no Quavo
Freak b-tch she like Casamigos not the Migos

You can hear the line below.

In case you missed it, the two long have had beef. But it was fresh on the minds of the industry after the two were seated next to each other at the Rhude Fashion Show in Paris. Fans wondered if that meant the two were on the same page. Brown clarified they were not: “Can’t pick who u sit by.”

He added, “F–k all that growth sht. N–ia not finna fumble my bag for little ni–as.”

The root of their beef is Quavo, who once dated Brown’s ex Karrueche Tran in 2017.

LISTEN: J. Cole Appears on New Future Single “Red Leather”

J. Cole Drops "Procrastination (Broke)" Loosie Using Fan-Created Beat He Found on YouTube

One week after he ended his beef with Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole has appeared on Future’s WE STILL DON’T TRUST YOU album, specifically on “Red Leather.”

“My energy was never on some toughest n–ga sh-t
I was just a conscious rapper who would f-ck a n–a b*tch”

While some fans believe the song is a response to sliding away from the beef, that may not be the case. Metro Boomin was mentioned in footage from the Might Delete Later, leading some to believe this collaboration was already underway.

However, he was a target on the first album, and the timing is intriguing. You can hear “Red Leather” below.

ASAP Rocky Disses Drake on Future’s “Show of Hands”

ASAP Rocky Disses Drake on Future's "Show of Hands"

Another Future album has dropped, and more shots are headed to Drake. This time, ASAP Rocky is behind the bars.

Appearing on “Show of Hands,” from the second disc of the album, Rocky alludes to having a sexual relationship with Sophie Brussaux, the mother of Drake’s son, before she became pregnant with Adonis, and claims the For All the Dogs album “came and went.”

Verse one
Call up Pluto, Metro, should’ve put me on the first one
Niggas swear they bitch the baddest, I just bagged the worst one
Niggas in they feelings over women, what, you hurt or somethin’?
I smash before you birthed son, Flacko hit it first, son
Still don’ trust you, it’s always us, never them
Heard you dropped your latest shit
Funny how it just came and went

On For All The Dogs, Drake shaded both Rihanna and ASAP Rocky on the “Fear of Heights” single:

Why they make it sound like I’m still hung up on you?
That could never be
Gyal can’t run me
Better him than me
Better it’s not me
I’m anti, I’m anti
Yeah, and the sex was average with you
Yeah, I’m anti ’cause I had it with you
Okay, I’m auntie like your daddy’s sister
Auntie like a family picture
And I had way badder bitches than you, TBH

Drake would also shade Rocky on “Another Late Night” from the same album: “I ain’t Pretty Flacko, bitch, this shit get really Rocky.”

Today In Hip Hop History: The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack for ‘Friday’ Dropped 29 Years Ago

Friday Soundtrack

On this day in Hip Hop history, the cult classic comedy Friday soundtrack was released by 550 Music and Epic Records. The album peaked at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart, where it stood for two weeks, and #1 on the Top R&B/Hip Hop chart, where it stood for six weeks. The album was just as commercially successful as the film and was certified double platinum only two months later.

During the 90s, it seemed that every soundtrack was a hit and the Friday soundtrack followed suit. With tracks from Ice Cube, Scarface, Dr. Dre, Cypress Hill, and 2 Live Crew, the album stacked up to be an amazing compilation of original tracks and poppin’ radio singles. At the same time, the addition of a few throwbacks from The Isley Brothers, Bootsy Collins, and Rick James gave the album surprising depth and a sense of nostalgia. Dr. Dre’s original single for the film, “Keep Their Head Ringing,” was able to see great success due to this soundtrack. It ranked at #10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and #1 on the Hot Rap Tracks chart. It was certified gold by the RIAA in May 1995.

WATCH: Vince Staples Calls Out Streamers for Supporting Beef but Not Empowering Artists

Vince Staples was on The Joe Budden Podcast and pointed out another side of the current Kendrick Lamar/J. Cole/Drake beef that many have not considered, while stating the cast’s takes are “borderline coonery.”

Vince highlighted how corporations are getting in on the beef, highlighting the battles but never advocating for artists’ pockets.

“Once n-ggas mad, we got billboards from streamers talking about ‘Hip-Hop is a sport,’ but we ain’t never see a billboard from a streamer that said ‘give that n-gga his publishing back,’” Staples said.

You can hear Vince’s entire take below.

Today in Hip Hop History: Public Enemy’s ‘Fear of a Black Planet’ Was Released 34 Years Ago

fear of a black planet

April 10, 1990, was the release date of a cornerstone in hip-hop music: Public Enemy’s Fear of a Black Planet. Still known as one of the most empowering albums of its time, the album was written during a pivotal era both in America and in music: the Golden Age of Hip Hop.

Preceding the time when samples required clearance and approval to be used in sample-based music, the album is layered heavily with elements providing space and depth to levels of complexity previously unheard. Fear of a Black Planet‘s production team, The Bomb Squad, worked tirelessly to bring their signature sound to the album.  As Rolling Stone’s Christopher Weingarten said in an interview late last year with leading Public Enemy MC Chuck D, it was one of the…

“most sonically adventurous and politically stirring records of all time.”

FightThePower_Sampled_Tracks
Examples of some of the known samples, these from the 20th track on the album “Fight The Power”. Bomb Squad producer Hank Shocklee claimed in an interview this year there are still many more samples he’s never spoken of.
fear-of-a-black-planet3

Within the first week of release, the album sold more than a million copies, coming in at number 10 on Billboard’s Top Pop Albums chart.  Commenting on several racially and politically engaging topics was the goal of the album, and the track that said it best was “Fight The Power.”  The deep rhymes and intense verbiage used by Chuck in revolutionary poetry made the track not only what the group became known for, but also their critically acclaimed anthem.

Used by director Spike Lee for his film Do The Right Thing, who also filmed this music video, this track alone could be used to describe this legendary album.  Fear of a Black Planet was later listed as Rolling Stone’s 300th greatest record of all time.Today in Hip Hop History: Public Enemy’s ‘Fear of a Black Planet’ Was Released 33 Years AgoToday in Hip Hop History: Public Enemy’s ‘Fear of a Black Planet’ Was Released 33 Years Ago
